Madison’s Bulldogs proved why they are ranked number one in Class A boys basketball polls when they doubled up on the Flandreau Fliers last week, 72-36.
The Fliers were given the big loss on the Madison court in a make-up contest Monday, Jan. 20.
"This was a tough night for us,” said Head Coach Eric Bass.
“We did some good things, but we made a lot of mistakes against a very talented team. Those will always come back to bite you in the end.”
The Fliers scored five points in the opening quarter and added only 13 before the halftime buzzer sounded. With 32 first half points, the Bulldogs came out of the locker room pouring in 40 more points in the second half. Flandreau made another 18 points in the second half.
All Flier players were held to single digit scoring. Twenty-three shots were attempted from three-point range but only three fell in. Geno Burshiem made 8 points, had 6 rebounds and had 3 steals to lead the Flier effort. Fellow senior Guy Zephier, Jr. had 7 points.
“We will take some things away from the game and learn from them and use it to get better," Bass added.
